“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.” ~ Albert Einstein; German-American physicist.
The following is an excerpt of a book I just started writing, titled, “Inner Wealth! Outer Wealth!”
The brain and the mind, of course, are two very different things, working in tandem but very different from each other; but, as it were, the ego’s deceit makes it look like they are one and the same (the ever-nagging duality of the truly mental energies and the basic physical ones), because that is how most people experiences this phenomenon on a daily routine—the brain emits thoughts and this is the mind, plain and simple this is the common belief of the average person.
Now, to find out the reality we must delve deeper into that which is mental science, so one must come to understand that thought is simply a physical tool, that’s it, a “dead” object itself—like things emerging or being thrown at us to be used to navigate and make choices in our daily living—which is completely mechanical, crass, base, and which creates from the past and the future because it lives indeed in the past and the future. Like we have seen before this chapter, thought is just a reflection of our physical senses on the outside environment, obviously, to sense our way in this material universe; and this is why thought is mechanical and base, objective and dualistic in nature, always changing and obsessive if maintained unruly, for the mentioned reason that it acts upon what the physical senses receive or gather from the outer world, the ever-changing environment, and so thought in our conscious mind is an entity which is physical itself and subject to all change.
Having established that premise, for thought to be born and emerge within the physical brain, via electric signals and chemicals, there has to be “space” for it to flow unencumbered, a space in which it can gravitate and expand if it shall become a thought we may choose to officiate, perhaps a vast grid where it swims and it flourishes and ferments (a field-stream where the seed or thought can germinate richly) to create great ideas to thus move our life forward, to innovate our unique craft, to weave inspirational stories from the past and mold our future, and to finally bestow upon life schemes of love or hatred.
This vast grid or space in which thought can emerge and manifest, as an idea that grows and grows, is the mighty but misused human mind; so, as one can easily tell by now, thoughts are like ripples or waves, and the mind is like the ocean.
The human brain then acts as a receiving and also signaling antenna for energy patterns residing within the mind itself, which exist as consciousness conveyed in the physical form of thought. Thoughts are not created out of nothing and not only out of our own physical senses, but they are “dead” objects flowing in and out of this vast grid—such being a grid of in-formation and energy fields known to science as Attractors. Thoughts are then constantly flowing when the conscious mind is on (when one is awake)—i.e., your thoughts, my thoughts, everybody else’s thoughts swimming in this vast grid or ocean—but arranged to each Attractor or energy field—i.e., my energy field, your energy field, etc. etc.
But, however personal these thoughts flowing to, and within, each Attractor Field are, still, people quite often might pick up the thoughts of somebody else since, like above-mentioned, the brain acts as a receiving and signaling antenna and this antenna, depending on how powerful it is, does not discriminate among different signals that might cross the individual Attractor Field.
Needless to say, our individual brain receives the thought, molds it to our own physical senses, computes the new information gathered and creates our unique perspective.
For example, a great artist in one side of the world has access to an inspiring idea, in the form of raw energy, to create a wonderful masterpiece, and that same idea is also available to be picked up from this grid by the brain of a janitor living on the other side of the world; however, the difference here is that the physical and mechanical brain of the artist has been conditioned and strengthened for years in creativity and innovation through self-discipline (could be more grey matter formed, more neural connections in the physical brain, etc.) to receive this grand signal he will turn into a great idea, but the janitor’s brain is not prepared to receive this signal (could be not enough knowledge of the craft, less neural connections, polluted brain by drugs or unhealthy foods or poisons of any kind, etc.) thus he will not access this mental energy.
Of course, this is just an example and in no way I mean to say that a janitor couldn’t achieve great accomplishments as the artist; even so, the message here is clear, that preparing the brain through self-discipline, for as long as it takes, is all there is to access these wonderful, raw energies of mental origin.
The molding, shaping, and managing of these energies create genius as we know it in our human society.
